To NaNoWriMo or not to NaNoWriMo?
To NaNoWriMo or not to NaNoWriMo?
This has been the hardest month. I think I say that every month. But this month really has been.
The no-TV thing is weird. I didn’t realize before how much and often it turns off my mind. I overthink things like crazy when I’m not allowed to zone out or lose myself in a different world.
I’m glad I made it a month of Yoga for June. It helps quiet the mind a little.
I’ve watched all of season 4 of Breaking Bad in the last 4 days with Eric. I justified it by saying, “It’s on the DVR, it’s not like I’m just zoning out with Dr. Phil.”
And how can you say no to this guy?
It’s been a tough month. I’m probably a baby for missing tv so much, but it’s so nice to turn off my brain.
I have gotten a lot of stuff done this month though. So, there’s that.
It was like Tales from the Crypt in there and my teacher was some combination of Jigsaw, The Wicked Witch of the West and the Woman in Black — book, not film. She waited until we did THREE SETS OF WARRIOR TWO, two complete with the vine and bird of paradise, two sets of tree and standing bow to say, “You guys do NOT have enough energy today.”
WHAT WERE WE JUST DOING? Fun fact — I do not respond well to drill sergeant/middle school P.E. teacher/overly enthusiastic exercise science major motivation. I turn into the kid I was in middle school P.E., giggling away at the ridiculousness of it, then laying on the floor.
So then she brought out max chatarungas. I can do one in the flow, so three is extremely laughable. Not only am I weak in upper body strength, I’m not coordinated enough to do three push ups and still flow with grace. I look like a weird turtle with a towel stuck to my legs, dragging itself on the floor. Then we did a second set of crescent lunge. Fine, okay.
And then I hear, “Since you guys are so tired we better do energization breaths and make a chi ball!” Wide-legged squats and upper body rotation while in said straddle squat position….60 minutes into class.
And then, like all things, it came to an end. It was a different, but interesting experience. Then I went home and I was like:
Which of the following items does NOT belong in the hot room?
B) Water bottles
D) A Baggie of cheerios that you munch on IN CLASS?!?
Have you ever seen Jem?
I hadn’t, until I decided Netflix didn’t count as “watching TV” and a documentary on Jonestown turned into two nights in a row of JEM!
That’s Jem, in the pink. That’s her band, “The Holograms” behind her.
Yeah, watching Jem totally counts as watching TV. As of yesterday, the Jem love is on pause.
But watch this intro and tell me you wouldn’t be addicted.
Alternatively known as “The Month I Didn’t Think Through.”
All’s fine and well on the Yoga boat. Month long unlimited pass is purchased (for a stupendous $50) and I’ve decided instead of 30 days of Yoga it’ll more likely be five times a week. Which is still a ton.
For my off, I’m doing a month without TV. This is the part I didn’t think through. I’m maybe a little bit addicted to Dr. Phil. And I maybe spent the better part of 6 hours yesterday watching the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee. (Arvind was robbed, right?) I also feel like Eric will suffer greatly this month, as he loves TV more than anyone. I feel like this will be another FB month, where I constantly bitch about my sad life without technology. Maybe Eric will guest post about how much it sucks.
Maybe it won’t suck at all.
AND, now that May has gotten me in the habit of posting pictures, I’ll likely be posting more! So yay. Plus — my desk stayed clean!
One of my favorite places to wake up.
